Throughout my later adult hood weight has been an ongoing problem...but the trigger to drop weight this time:
I'm in a doctoral program and I now have to video tap sessions for supervision and seeing myself on that tape discussed me. Boobs hanging on my belly, slouching, I look nothing like how I fee and NOTHING of what I want to look like. Topping that off I do have pain from being so heavy, I am out of shape and feel icky, and I quit be social hiding from everyone because of my weight.
But seeing that video did it...I knew then I saw, oh-my.
It's over, I will be how I feel about myself, not what I have been in deniable about.
